JAY Z has dropped his first solo record in three years in response to the recent police shootings of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile. Released via TIDAL, “spiritual” sees Hov exploring his experiences growing up, his role in the black community and his fears for his daughter’s future safety. He raps:
“I am not poison, no I am not poison, just a boy from the hood that got my hands in the air in despair, don’t shoot / I just want to do good.”
Jay also paired “spiritual” with a heartfelt personal message. Read the letter and stream the song below.
